To say life is a little strange at the minute would be an understatement! With ever increasing fears around Covid-19 auction houses across the UK, like most businesses that deal with the public face to face, have had to adapt to new ways of working. Social and safe distancing practices have meant that some auction houses just simply can’t operate under normal conditions.
Take for example property auctions, traditionally held in large function suites such as those found at hotels or football stadiums. These typically have hundreds of attendees sat in rows of chairs at any one auction event. New virus related restrictions that seem to be changing every other day just make these types of events near impossible right now.
So what’s the answer? We can’t just sit back and wait until all this blows over can we?
Well, thanks to ever improving technology and the speedy rise in recent times of simulcast auction software there is a solution! One that brings the intensity of the LIVE auction room atmosphere to bidders at home or work via the internet. So, no matter where your bidders are in the world your auction items can be offered for sale in a traditional auction format that is broadcast over the internet.
